Consulate Review: Bangkok, Thailand
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 15, 2019
Embassy Review : Overall, the process was smooth and took me an hour.

My interview was at 7.30am but I got there at 6.30 when the line was still short. I asked a security guard what I should do and showed her my appointment letter. She told me to just check in at the security window at 7.15am, so I just waited on the side. However, when the checkers came out, I was told to be in line. Lesson learned, just line up till you see the ladies in blue shirt (checkers).

After passing the security, I checked in at one counter where they put a sticker on my passport. It has the tracking # for EMS delivery so better copy that for your reference.

Next, I was called to a window where a Thai staff checked all my documents and asked me for my medical result and other original papers. This took about 15mins. I was even surprised to see all the documents, photos and other evidence from the USCIS are with them. It means, no need for additional evidence. BTW, the staff was actually quite friendly.

Then we were told to wait inside the office where all visa applicants are until our names are called. Once called, the CO made me swear that everything we provided is true and took my fingerprints. He was actually also nice and friendly. I saw that he had all my documents and he only asked a few questions.

Where we met. How we met. Where he lives and works.

After that, he said the visa is approved and will have to wait for 1 week to get the passport back.

Hope this helps the rest who are also preparing for their interview. 😊

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
